Watershed: Contemporary Landscape Photography

The Telfairs Museums’ exhibition, Watershed: Contemporary Landscape Photography, examines landscape photographs produced after 1970, in particular works that illustrate mankind’s undeniable and often negative impact on the land. Establishing a firm split from the pristine worldview of earlier landscape photographers such as Ansel Adams, the photographs reveal landscapes as activated spaces imprinted by mankind and marked by social performance. The exhibition is on view at the Jepson Center for the Arts in Savannah October 14th – January 29th.
